Go Pack! Where to Find the Nation’s Best Packers Bars
It was a chilly night, and the Packers had just scored a touchdown. A crowd of fans wearing green and gold, packed together on leather couches and around high-top tables, grabbed the person nearest them, likely a complete stranger, for a hug and a high-five. The Packers’ touchdown celebration song “Bang the Drum all Day” played over the bar’s sound system as the bartender passed out free shots in team colors to be taken after the traditional halftime “Go Pack Go!” chant.
It was almost as though it were a small bar in Green Bay, Wisconsin, and not a cozy dive two miles from the beach in Los Angeles, California.
Lambeau Field is famous for its tailgates, in which the country’s smallest professional football market turns out by the thousands – many fans never even stepping foot inside the stadium, but instead content to watch the game on portable tv’s in the parking lot. But for the fans who have never even stepped foot in Wisconsin, recreating the atmosphere of Lambeau is possible with a little research.
